The LA-based band is out on a UK tour ahead of the release of their third album Realms, which is due out in February.

Magic Wands comprise of Chris and Dexy Valentine. They mix equal elements gothy post-punk and synth pop and have recently expanded to a five-piece for live gigs.

Magic Wands have been remixed by The XX and Crystal Fighters and shared stages with acts including The Kills, The Horrors and The Jesus and Mary Chain.
